Rest day

Last night I was exhausted.  My eyes hurt, my throat was scratchy, and my breathing felt strained.  I was hoping it was just the accumulation of back-to-back exhausting days.  I woke up this morning with my resting heart rate 10 beats per minute higher than normal.  I definitely think I’m fighting something.  My throat is still scratchy and my bronchi seem somewhat constricted.  I decided to make today another rest day so I only ran a mile after school.  My running buddies were all busy but my husband was able to meet me so I hardly even noticed how uncomfortable I felt during that mile.  I’m hoping to get some good rest tonight and take it easy again tomorrow.  I would like to do my long run on Sunday but I will just have to see if I feel better by then.
